Its robust construction guarantees a long, low maintenance service-life and low cost of ownership.
All CX models are designed for strength and durability, the range offers standard features to suit most applications, as well as distinguishing characteristics to each model. The set of fluid heads in this five-option series deliver on Miller’s “right feel” and are backed by a three-year warranty promise that videographers and cinematographers have come to expect.
Also being shown, the Skyline 90 Fluid Head is designed to meet the stringent and rigorous standards presented by challenging environments and condition of Outside Broadcast (OB). With a sliding platform featuring 300mm of sliding range that glides smoothly and effortlessly with a full payload, the Skyline 90 easily balances heavy camera loads.
